Ten Strong Things

Ten Strong Things May 7, 2018

Wisdom from the Babylonian Talmud:

“Ten strong things have been created in the world: Rock is hard but iron cleaves it; Iron is hard but fire softens it; Fire is powerful but water quenches it; Water is heavy but clouds bear it; Clouds are thick but wind scatters them; Wind is strong but a body resists it; A body is strong but fear crushes it; Fear is powerful but wine banishes it; Wine is strong but sleep wears it off; Sleep is strong but death is stronger; And yet, love delivers us from death.”
